You can subscribe to an AWS Marketplace product and launch an instance from the Solr product's AMI using the Amazon EC2 launch wizard.

To launch an instance from the AWS Marketplace using the launch wizard

1. Open the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.

2. From the Amazon EC2 dashboard, choose Launch Instance.

On the Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) page, choose the AWS Marketplace category on the left. Find a suitable AMI by browsing the categories, or using the search functionality. Choose Select to choose your product.

3. A dialog displays an overview of the product you've selected. You can view the pricing information, as well as any other information that the vendor has provided. When you're ready, choose Continue.

4. On the Choose an Instance Type page, select the hardware configuration and size of the instance to launch. When you're done, choose Next: Configure Instance Details.

5. On the next pages of the wizard, you can configure your instance, add storage, and add tags. For more information about the different options you can configure, see Launching an Instance. Choose Next until you reach the Configure Security Group page.

6. The wizard creates a new security group according to the vendor's specifications for the product. The security group may include rules that allow all IP addresses (0.0.0.0/0) access on SSH (port 22) on Linux or RDP (port 3389) on Windows. We recommend that you adjust these rules to allow only a specific address or range of addresses to access your instance over those ports.

7.When you are ready, choose Review and Launch.

8. On the Review Instance Launch page, check the details of the AMI from which you're about to launch the instance, as well as the other configuration details you set up in the wizard. When you're ready, choose Launch to select or create a key pair, and launch your instance.

9. Depending on the product you've subscribed to, the instance may take a few minutes or more to launch. You are first subscribed to the product before your instance can launch. If there are any problems with your credit card details, you will be asked to update your account details. When the launch confirmation page displays.

About

Solr is a standalone enterprise search server with a REST-like API. We can put documents in it (called "indexing") via JSON, XML, CSV or binary over HTTP and can query it via HTTP GET and receive JSON, XML, CSV or binary results.

Guidelines

Development is available to any member of the eFront community. All fixes and improvements are done through pull requests to the code.

Limitations

  • Maximum number of documents per node is 50 to 100 million. 
  • Maximum number of results returned by a query is 250. 

Usage / Deployment Instruction

Open the URL: http://<instance ip address>

<instance ip address> : IP address of the running EC2 instance.

Step 1: Fill the primary authentication form with the following details –

Username: admin

Password: <instanceID>

Note: the solr platform runs on port: 8983 by default.
